Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Is this veinte cohol bananal?

Thanks, the coloration is what prompted me making this post. Looks more like a dwarf cavendish

This was sold as such, do the leaves match?

This graft is 2 months old, the film and rubber band just fell off today. Is there a risk of it popping off at this stage? The graft is almost invisible. Should I secure it by wrapping it again with a rubber band and film?

My bigger trees, not pictured, I did bark grafts that are held in place using zipties on one tree and both small picture hanging nails as well as zipties on the other. When should I remove the zipties? I am worried wind will snap the grafts off.



I should have atleast 4-5 more soon. Will keep you and the people who PMed updated when I have them!
Thanks for the interest!

Wow, very nice, I will be ordering a few. I like the color of your flowers, congrats on a new seedling, Purple Boots.

How is the taste of the fruits, is it similar to Fredericks and the other purple-colored fruits (posum purple, Nancy Garrison)?

The fruit tastes like a regular passion fruit to me, but I haven't tried too many named varieties to compare. It is sweeter when it shrivels up on the counter

Thanks for the interest, this sold out already!

I have 2 left, but am currently propagating more. Self fertile. Discovered it from planting seeds.

I am calling it "Purple Boots"
The leaves have red veins and the flowers are pigmented as well as the anthers.

$15 for the well rooted cutting + $12 priority mail shipping (I will check your zipcode to confirm).

Citrus General Discussion / Re: blood lime x yuzu
« on: June 17, 2024, 12:57:29 PM »
the yuzu pollen to the blood lime flower was deliberate, the other off-type seedlings were from fruit I did nothing to (which I understand the blood lime is a hybrid itself which produces offtypes) the only other reason (besides the intentional pollinating) I think it might be a hybrid with the yuzu are the petioles and the yuzu/mandarin scent of the leaves. will definitely keep an eye on it, so will have a better idea when it is larger

So you have made an intentional crossing or was it also a natural hybrid where you discovered a potential cross by planting the seeds?

It's an interesting mix for sure! Please keep us updated.

Tbud on the bottom lower graft on this branch. Cleft graft on top. The new growth pushed through the parafilm

Based on the color of the first two I'd say no. They look dessicated. Not sure about the last one hard to tell what is going on. If you use parafilm you don't need to unwrap the bud will grow through

I think I might have made a hybrid. The leaves have a yuzu scent.

Possible blood lime x yuzu seedling

Blood lime seedling without intentional crossing

But this one is also a blood lime seedling without intentional crossing

I have some videos up of my potted feijoas in zone 7 I think I had 20+ fruit between the two pots. I hand pollinated.
Eventually planted them in the ground and used passive protection but had die back from a harsh winter. I've since kept 1 in a pot again as I don't think the inground ones will flower unless we have a mild winter without dieback.

Highly recommend broncn! All of the 4 varieties arrived in excellent shape, and are growing now. Only had one variety fail due to my inexperience keeping water out of the graft, but will be trying again.

New Thomasville Tbud and Cleft graft both growing from April's graft. Graft to spare branch of Poncirus+ on poncirus.

Thomasville on taitri from last year also pushing now as well. Survived a mild winter.

This late pushing graft survived just fine. Prague is really something :)

I wonder if the mild winter and very warm spring had anything to do with it. These 80+ degree days. My pom is covered in buds now!


Hey! All the grafts took except the Tropical Treat. Somehow water got in and rotted out the grafts. I think it was the wood glue, I checked the bottle and it wasn't rated for outdoor use. So once we had heavy rain it softened up and allowed water to seep in. I am going to re-graft. The other bark graft of the Al's horn is alreay fully leafed out. I scraped out the glue and put wax over it so hopefully that will keep the water out.

I could cut some branches of my taitri and offer a small quantity of scions but will have to be next month as the new growth is in the floppy green stage. (US only and no citrus quarantine states)

Same goes for prague there is at least one or two branches I need to trim because it's growing into my other grafts. If anyone wants to try rooting and grafting the prague and taitri at the same time.

Taitri with Prague in the foreground as well as grafts of Bishop and Ichang papeda and Thomasville at the very top.

I got my taitri from Virginia Fruit Grower (eyeckr)

The flying dragon graft has grown very slowly in 4 years and has never flowered. The 2 year old taitri graft made a single bloom this spring. It is many times bigger than the size of the flying dragon graft. I hope it will flower again in the summer. I don't expect those to ripen if it does. The taitri graft on prague has survived 1f with some sun scald / cold damage but it quickly healed. This winter was mild so no damage. The flying dragon graft of prague also had damage but survived as well from that winter.

Anecdotal, my prague on taitri wakes up sooner than the prague on flying dragon. They are in different parts of the yard.

Have you gotten blooms and fruit on the taitri graft? I was wondering if it would set more fruit compared to the flying dragon. Also how is the cold hardest compared to the flying dragon?

Florian, have you harvested the fruit in the green stage? Is it edible? Some early Satsumas I've seen can be harvested green like Xie Shan and still be edible.

Here is another example, this forum user in 7b harvested her fruit around Thanksgiving (November). She is in Maryland, around 3 hours south from me in NJ

I saw a post on Facebook where Stan has shipped fruit in November to someone to try it, so it depends when the flowers set the fruit

In zone 8a the fruits will be destroyed by first frost before they are ripe.
